Qt Creator 11 released
We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 11!
Qt Creator has an integrated Terminal now. It supports multiple tabs, various shells, colors and fonts. It is used by default for Run in Terminal and when opening terminals from other places in Qt Creator, but you can opt-out in the preferences (Terminal > Use internal terminal). Please have a look at the documentation for details.
We added support for GitHub Copilot. It is based on the Copilot neovim plugin and the provided language server, which provides suggestions in the code editor. Before using it you need to enable the Qt Creator plugin in Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins on macOS) and configure it in the preferences. You can then also enable or disable it on a per-project basis. Please also see the recent blog post on Generative AI in Qt, and the Qt Creator documentation.
Qt Creator 11 introduces some first support for the Axivion Suite. After you configure access to the Axivion Dashboard and link a project to an Axivion project in the project settings, Qt Creator shows annotations of the latest run in the editors and allows you to view some details on the issues. See our documentation for details.
Qt Examples Revamp
For Qt there is an ongoing initiative to clean up and categorize examples to make them more useful and accessible. Qt 6.5.2 includes a first set of categorized examples and more are coming in future Qt versions. Qt Creator 11 shows these examples in categories for easier browsing as well.
Some more highlights of the improvement and fixes follow - please see our change log for a more extensive list.
- You have the option for slightly larger toolbars in Preferences > Interface > Toolbar style > Relaxed.
- We restructured the Issues view, so it should interfere less with clicking into and navigating it.
- We fixed that hardlinked files were unlinked when saving them.
- We added an editor with preview for Markdown (.md) files.
- Many issues when editing C++ and QML were fixed.
- Qt Creator is now able to add files directly to your CMake project files. Please have a look at the separate blog post on other improvements for CMake projects.
- We added experimental support for vcpkg. It includes a wizard and an editor for vcpkg.json files, and a search dialog for packages. Turn the plugin on in Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins on macOS) and see the documentation for details.
